Inspired by Azzrian to re-visit this one this morning, I AM changing my rating as it is a nice blend. that being said, I think i prefer straight Laoshan Black. There’s an intensity that i find lacking in the blend that I adore in the straight tea. Anytime i drink Verdant teas though, I really am in awe of how wonderful tea can be when you take even just a few moments to savour the flavour and absorb what’s going on around you…to take a deep breath and that 30 second pause in our hectic days.

Very true! I love that I’m reading this sentiment so often on Steepster these days. I think any tea can do that for you, if you just take the time to listen and open yourself to that experience, but have really great tea sure makes it easier!

Also- I realize I’ve never had more than a sample of this or an iced version at the Farmers’ Market. I have to get some for real before it goes away…

Oh man, I think I have an ounce of this from a year ago (or more!) that I’ve never tried. I don’t even remeber what season it was from, how am I going to log it ?!?! Thank the gods we’re moving into tea drinking season : )

@ Uniquity- I think you must have the original Imperial Breakfast, since the Summer Imperial Breakfast is new as of the beginning of this summer.

Uniquity

Ah, I must! : )

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
